Wildlife management and licensing advice for birds and mammals
The mole (talpa europaea) is a common British mammal. Although it is not often seen, the damaging results of it's tunnelling are all too visible.
Whilst molehills and tunnels are merely a nuisance in gardens, in agricultural situations they can lead to :
- contamination of grass by soil may lead to poor quality silage being produced
- risk of damaging grass-cutting machinery
- disturb roots and damage plant growth
There are two methods of controlling moles - trapping and gassing using aluminium phosphide. The control of moles should only be carried out if the molehills and tunnels can not be tolerated.
